Pianist, composer and teacher William L. Buelow (b. 1941) is Professor Emeritus of Marietta College, Marietta, Ohio. He now resides in Vonore, Tennessee, where he teaches piano and works as a freelance composer. He has produced several award-winning compositions, and his works range from piano solo, choral and vocal solo, to wind quintet and orchestral. In February, 2003, he was composer-in-residence at Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana, where many of his works were performed on several programs.
An excellent pianist, Buelow is equally at home as soloist, chamber musician or accompanist. His performances of American Art Song with internationally-acclaimed soprano, Rosalind Rees, have garnered fine reviews. Their tours in the Midwest have included recitals at Carnegie-Mellon University, The University of Cincinnati, Wittenberg, Denison University, Ohio University, Lycoming College and Duquesne University.
As a composer, Buelow has fulfilled several commissions for instrumental, vocal and choral works. His Violin Sonata was commissioned by the Duo Grishman-Chiu, from Pittsburgh, PA., and was premiered by them in 1994 at Marietta College. A subsequent recorded performance of the piece was broadcast by WQED in Pittsburgh, and it was later performed in England, Switzerland, Germany and Taiwan, as well as in several other places in the U.S., by the Duo Grishman-Chiu.
A commission from the Con Spirito Woodwind Quintet led Buelow to set Marge Piercy's poem Attack of the Squash People, for soprano, piano and wind quintet. It's premiere at Duquesne University in 1989 was recorded by WQED and broadcast on their series "A Local Touch." This humorous work won a place in Youngstown State University's Contemporary Music Festival and was performed there in 1992.
Heaven Haven, commissioned by the Gregg Smith Singers, was premiered by them at the 1987 American Guild of Organists Convention in Pittsburgh, and was presented again at a "Meet the Composer" concert in New York. Following its performances at the Charles Ives Center for American Music in 1987 and the Adirondack Festival of American Music also in 1987, Heaven Haven won the 1990 Chautauqua Chamber Singer's Competition and was performed in Jamestown and Fredonia, New York. Buelow also accompanied the Gregg Smith singers in a 1987 performance of several of his haiku settings at the Adirondack Festival of American Music. In 1988, he performed his Fantasia for Piano and Orchestra at Lake Placid with the festival orchestra.
In addition to his performances of contemporary vocal literature with Rosalind Rees, Buelow is also a committed teacher of piano, theory and jazz history. As a certified Master Teacher by MTNA, he devoted four years to studying the teachings of Dorothy Taubman with Robert Shannon and Edna Golandsky.
